Three dead after crossing border in Arizona, CBP warns of heat risk

Three people crossing the border from Mexico into the United States died as a result of the high summer temperatures.

United States Customs and Border Protection announced on Friday that three Mexican migrants were found dead after a search and rescue mission near Ajo, Arizona, by federal border authorities on Wednesday morning. The border law enforcement agency explained that human smugglers routinely take advantage of those seeking to come to the U.S.

“CBP’s message for anyone who is thinking of soliciting the services of smuggling organizations to enter the United States illegally along the Southern border is simple: don’t do it”, Tucson Sector Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Justin De La Torre said in a. statement on Friday. The Tucson Sector is one of the nation's busiest, with over 400,000 encounters this fiscal year so far.
